Friending Meme
So on to part 2 of the birthday celebration. It has been waaaaaay to long since we have had a Friending Meme and since it is Valentine’s Day, who doesn’t need some philia, or brotherly love?  We have also added several new members since our last Friending Meme so what better time than now to do one?

Just copy and paste the questions into the comments section. You can answer as many or as few of them as you like. We know that over 12 seasons it hard to pick just one favorite thing, so if you have two or three, that is OK. Add as much additional information to your entry as you are comfortable with. As you get to know one another, feel free to friend away!





Once again, there is an icon from dizzojay to use if you would like:




As always, have fun and happy birthday!

(One of)your favorite funny or schmoopy SPN fics(Can be one of yours or someone else's)? I can't think of one specific fic, but I'm going to nominate any one of Sasha_dragon's fics, because they're always a perfect combination of humour, schmoop and a little dash of angst.

Location: Oregon, Portland
Age: 50s
Where else can we find you? (Tumblr, Twitter etc.) I have both twitter & tumblr, although I'm not very active on either at the moment
Sam-girl or Dean-girl? DEAN, my beautiful beautiful DEAN, he owns my heart and soul.

(One of)your favorite funny or schmoopy SPN fics(Can be one of yours or someone else's)? 'Everybody's a Moron' Can't remember the writer off-hand, but Dean gets stuck in a robbery at a fast food joint by a stupid moronic burglar and hilarity ensues.
Any crazy plot bunnies you want to set free? Can't think of any at the moment

Any crazy plot bunnies you want to set free? Crowley pointing out to Dean the issues of Sam and Rowena dating.
Any other favorite supernatural series/movies/books that you fan-girl over aside from the Winchester family? Blue Exorcist (This is the part where I try to sell anyone who likes Sam/Dean on Rin/Yukio. They are twin brothers who are learning to become exorcists. The older one is motivated to do so because he wants to kill Satan to avenge their father and he is obsessed with food. The younger one is very studious and already an instructor at the exorcist academy. He is also constantly worried about when/if the demon blood he was exposed to as a fetus will infect him and about his brother's reckless behavior.) I consume a lot (in all caps with red flashing lights) of supernatural themed movies and books. I would be hard to impossible to pick favorites.

But so far, only one employee has ever noticed.

b)I played both flute and French Horn in school growing up but gave them up at different times before university.

Anything else you'd like to share? I think I covered quite a bit so far :)
